  • Fabulous Ten Day Stay

    "We stayed at La Palapa in April 2016. We took Canada Transfer from the airport and they gave us a complimentary 15 minutes stop for a few groceries to deal with the arrival day. We arrived to a beautiful home and a beautiful yard. We were greeted by Carmen and then Colleen, and familiarized with the workings of the house. Our holiday quickly began that afternoon. The house is large, with plenty of ceiling fans and moveable fans as well. We got better at pushing the hot air out of the house as the week went on. The main floor bedroom has air conditioning and locks so that is where we slept and kept our belongings. I think at the cooler times of the year, sleeping upstairs with the beautiful views and wrap around deck would be fabulous. The front gate is very secure and we felt very safe and comfortable right away. The backyard has a very clean, beautiful pool which we enjoyed immensely. There is wonderful greenery in the backyard and we loved all the different animals that visited throughout the week, especially the very colorful birds. The little gecko living in one of the conch shells was better than tv. We never turned the tv on but there is a nice flat screen tv to watch if you need. We definitely utilized the outdoor shower on the upper level. Was daring but wonderful. We cooked more at the house than we thought we would, enjoyed getting familiar with the charcoal grilling. The walk on the beach ( across the road)to town is twenty five minutes at a casual pace. We went in a couple mornings to enjoy a wonderful variety of eggs at El Nicho restaurant. A must try! Opens at 7:30am and is busy quickly. You can also walk the road to town, which has plenty of shade and is a nice walk as well. It was $50 peso to town from the Pearl Desire Hotel, just down the road from the house. We usually walked unless we had groceries. Carmen came mid week to do a change of bedding and clean the house. She worked extremely hard and went above and beyond what we needed. We enjoyed a nice chat with her using the itranslate on the ipad, Carlos came by twice to balance the pool and it sparkled throughout the week. Would we go back? Yes, we are currently looking at what our next dates will be. This is our first time renting a private house versus an all inclusive hotel and it was great. We thank Colleen for being so good to us and opening her home for us to relax and enjoy."

  • Caribbean breezes, fantastic views, hospitality in heaps

    "We stayed for a week mid-April on the upper Jacuzzi level. The entire house has good light, great breezes blowing through and a location that is easy to use as a navigation point for the island. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, we didn't use the other bedroom but I'd imagine it was the same. The master bathroom tub didn't have water, but no worries because the other bathroom had lots of hot water and good pressure. Eliot was a huge help to us, making us feel at home and answering any questions we might have about the island or the house. Lorenzo is your go to guy for doing a snorkel trip, sight seeing trip, really anything. He came and cooked some chilies on our gas stove and showed us how he made salsa verde. Everyday there was house keeping service which was unobtrusive and she did a wonderful job. Jimbo and Karen have found the perfect mix of people to care for their home. The customer care and fast response from Karen and Jimbo was terrific. Every question you could think of (and many you never thought to ask) were answered quickly and efficiently. We rented a golf cart for the week and that was one of the ways we were able to do all our adventuring. We both strongly suggest splurging and renting a golf cart for your stay. We ate several times at Mango but Rolandi's was our favorite place to eat. We stopped at many places north, south, east and west on the island and never had a bad meal. The turtle farm was a fun visit. We never made it to the ice bar, but drove past it many times. We saw small paisley colored sting rays in the water and a huge group of clown fish off of the back patio."
